Char Siu Pork & Stir Fried Rice

"Char Siu is a type of Cantonese roast meat that I regularly had back in Macau during Chinese New Year. So to bring back some memories I knew this would be the best dish to pair with Tilda’s Premium USA Long Grain Rice. The grains have a clean and fresh taste to absorb all the delicious flavours of this dish. And of course couldn’t have Char Siu without some ginger scallion oil sauce, you can never Char Siu without it! 😮‍💨" Courtesy of @thatfoodiejess

How to make Char Siu Pork & Stir Fried Rice

  1. Cook rice ahead of making fried rice: In a pot add washed 1/2 cup of Tilda’s Premium USA Long Grain Rice and 1 cup water.

  2. Over high heat bring the pot to boil uncovered.

  3. Once boiling, cover and bring down to simmer and cook for 12 minutes.

  4. Remove from heat and let sit with lid for another 10 minutes before fluffing up.

  5. Let the rice cool for a couple of hours or overnight before using.
